So, you may think working in a Care Home isn't a challenge? You may get bored? Well, it can certainly be different. The essence of care home nursing is holistic care for the individual. You are working in a persons home and you will get to know them, their personalities and their families in a way you may not have done before. Ultimately, it can be a very rewarding role as you have the time to care for the person and not only their medical problems. Acute nursing may have more intensity, but the one thing nursing home nursing isnt, is dull. You become part of a family. You will face different challenges: In a dementia unit you will use skilled communication techniques to de-escalate aggressive patients, manage the environment, manage a team of staff, administer medications using skilled communication, provide complex end of life care, write complex care plans, liaise with GPs, therapists, hospitals, families and other community teams. Different doesnt have to mean bad. Get in touch to find out more.
